Palace Hotel #BrokenHill has same architect #AlfredDunn as my local Uniting Church

The Palace Hotel
Argent Street, Broken Hill
While surfing Twitter for #BrokenHill stories and news recently, I found a curious connection to my local suburb of Hawthorn.

It turns out that the architect of the very impressive local Auburn Uniting Church (in Hawthorn East) is the same architect as Broken Hill's The Palace Hotel.

The styles appear different but so is the purpose of both buildings so I guess it's not surprising that there would be some difference in their appearance.

It's a slightly obscure connection between Broken Hill and my suburb of Hawthorn, but hey, it's a connection nonetheless, which is why I thought it was of interest.

Here's the tweet which drew my attention to the link.
Great to hear them acknowledge in this way, Broken Hill's progress towards becoming Australia's first Heritage city.

That's an exciting journey for Broken Hill which I'm watching with interest.

Cheers, Jane Deany
